At least 30 militants of the terrorist group operating in Iraq and Syria were killed in clashes with Kurdish troops in northeastern Syria on Thursday, reports said.

The fighting pitted ISIL militants against members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in the village of Qassiab in Hasakeh province, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.Kurdish fighters engaged in clashes with ISIL

The YPG regained control of the village, two days after it was seized by the terrorists, said the Britain-based group.

The Kurds also lost three fighters in the clashes, it added.
ISIL launched last June a brutal offensive against several areas across Iraq and Syria, as it announced its so-called “caliphate” in these areas.

However, several forces, including the Iraqi army, backed by the Kurdish fighters and popular forces, and the Syria army have been since June waging counter attack in order to regain areas seized by the Takfiri terrorists.
